Lessig speaks at Swarthmore

This is a video of Lawrence Lessig speaking at the launch of FreeCulture.org, April 23rd 2004. Sadly, the last roughly 3 minutes of the speech, right when Lessig gives the rousing call to action, is missing, due to my camcorder running out of tape and the other two videocameras in the room failing (redundancy, redundancy, redundancy!) Fortunately, the extended Q&A session is included, and that's interesting as always.
